Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Location 3 Properties Limited
to undertake archaeological trial trenching on land off Lupton Road,
Wallingford, Oxfordshire. The work was undertaken in advance of
determination of a planning application for commercial development at the
site. This was an additional evaluation stage to an earlier phase that was
completed in 2012 where only limited access was possible.
The evaluation comprised the excavation of three trenches and was carried
out in January 2020. This recorded shallow linear ditches and pits in all
trenches. Artefactual evidence was entirely absent.
The arrangement of linear features is suggestive of field boundaries or
enclosures. The absence of artefacts and any obvious settlement-related
features, such as postholes or penannular gullies, suggest that the site is
located away from its contemporary areas of occupation.
